Amiee Sue Malott

Instagram: @akaysdesigner Alyssa Kays is an artist from New Jersey with a degree in graphic design and advertising. However, she found her true passion in the surface pattern design industry! Alyssa has loved patterns since she was a little child being both a quilter and scrapbooker. On top of her college degree, she is also a graduate of recommended courses and online classes within the surface design community resulting in desirable artwork for products. Her style ranges from whimsical to traditional. Her art has appeared on gift wrap, paper tableware, fabric and much more. Alyssa is an avid photographer, especially of nature. She always has a camera with her, ready to capture inspiration for her true passion - making art! Her goal is to have her art printed on wall art as well as ceramic tableware. In her spare time, she likes to play the piano, read, and sing when no one is home. She is a great team player and her determination is contagious!

Instagram: @amieesuedesigns Amiee Sue Malott is a surface designer and illustrator from Michigan. Amiee has a B.F.A. in Graphic Design with over 15 years of experience in the Children’s Toy & Craft Market. She is inspired by all things happy and cute! Amiee recently submitted the following artwork to

They Draw and Cook Eat the Rainbow Challenge cohosted by They Draw and Cook and Spirituality & Health Magazine. Gloriously, her cheerful art was hand picked as one of the top 4 winners. WOW! What a major highlight and career boost. This has inspired a shift in direction towards the editorial market. Since she is already so accomplished in the gift/stationery and fabric markets, expanding only makes sense as the next step! When she is not illustrating Amiee can be found spending time with family, creating fun projects for her spunky little girl, drinking coffee or enjoying the outdoors. She is truly a treat and a major talent!

With her degree in Creative Arts and training in Interior Design, Bex is always keen to explore new

art styles, techniques, and has recently been making a splash in the home decor market! She has the sweetest disposition and her expertise in the industry shines!
